At the time of the incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in Brownsville, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and five (5) months.
An incident happened on or about February 25, 2020, through March 26, 2020, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, the LVN misappropriated ninety-one (91) Robaxin, Naprosyn, Tylenol, and Zofran tablets belonging to the facility and patients thereof. Furthermore, the LVN canceled ninety-one (91) returns for the medications in the medication system and admitted to misappropriating the medications to help control her pain. The LVN’s conduct was likely to defraud the facility and patients of the cost of the medications.
In response to the incident, the LVN states she removed the medications sporadically, and at different times, for personal use. The LVN relates she had prescriptions for the medications she took and that her sciatic nerve pain became unbearable at the end of February 2020.
The LVN failed to have someone to represent and defend her case against the court. She was disciplined and suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing. having a nurse attorney to represent you may bring changes to the outcome of your case. Nurses should always put it in mind that having legal counsel has a positive impact on the result of your case.
